Jordan's King Abdullah appoints palace aide Bisher al Khasawneh PM

AMMAN, Oct 7 (Reuters) - Jordan’s King Abdullah appointed veteran diplomat and palace aide Bisher al Khasawneh as the new prime minister only days after accepting the resignation of Omar al-Razzaz, the royal palace said.

The monarch earlier dissolved parliament at the end of its four-year term in a move that under constitutional rules meant the government had to resign within a week. (Reporting by Suleiman Al-Khalidi)
